The veteran safety said Thursday that he's still breaking up scar tissue in his surgically repaired hip.
"I want to play, but I've got to be smart," Reed said, via the Houston Chronicle. "I'm a team player, and I'll do whatever my coaches want me to do."
It sounds like his return might be another week away.
